The innovative AxION® DSA™ (Direct Sample Analysis) system brings a whole new level of ease, productivity and enhanced performance to any laboratory. No up-front chromatographic separation, lengthy method development, or sample preparation is needed when using the AxION DSA system. Experience the DSA difference for yourself and go from sample to results faster than ever before.
Directly analyze your sample
Minimal to no sample preparation
No method development
No loss of sample integrity
Results in seconds
Fast, accurate data acquisition when coupled to the AxION 2 TOF MS
Automated data acquisition for up to 13 solid or liquid samples
Accurate data, confident results
When coupled to the AxION 2 TOF MS, <2 ppm accurate mass, fast acquisition rate and a wide dynamic range for semi-quantitative analysis
Exceptionally sensitive providing measurement of substances in the most complex matrix
Enclosed system to prevent background laboratory contamination
PerkinElmer patented Atmospheric Pressure Chemical Ionization (APCI design) that prevents ion suppression and eliminates metastable ions
DSA and TOF are fully integrated and optimally designed to work together
No sample carryover enabled by disposable sample holders and fast analysis time
Rapid data processing
Easy post processing due to measurement of true molecular ions
Dedicated target analysis software (AxION Solo) simplifies system operation and data collection.
Flexibility to switch between either LC or DSA sample introduction
Unique capillary extender allows switching without venting the system in minutes.
Charting Kidney Cancer Metabolism Changes in cell metabolism are increasingly recognized as an important way tumors develop and progress, yet these changes are hard to measure and interpret. A new tool designed by MSK scientists allows users to identify metabolic changes in kidney cancer tumors that may one day be targets for therapy.Spotlight on Acoustic Liquid Handling Journal of Laboratory Automation special issue highlights how acoustic liquid handling enables breakthrough innovations.Microbes Take Their Vitamins Scientists exploit organisms' needs in order to track 'vitamin mimics' in bacteria.Keeping a Specimen's Story Straight Imagine 96 people standing shoulder to shoulder, not touching and attempting to breathe only the air un-exhaled by the others. Sound impossible?Portable Kit Can Recover Traces of Chemical Evidence A chemist at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has developed a portable version of his method for recovering trace chemicals such as environmental pollutants and forensic evidence including secret graves and arson fire debris.Diagnosis of Two Rare Childhood Diseases Improved For the first time, researchers have developed tests that could improve the diagnosis of two rare childhood diseases known as congenital disorders of glycosylation (CDGs) and metachromatic leukodystrophy, and that could even lead to new treatments for CDGs. Cleaning Out the Membrane Each Day Cell membranes are made up of a lipid bilayer that is constantly changing due to the flux of material in and out of the cell. New Test for Cancer and Diabetes Biomarkers University of Warwick researchers developed the test to help identify molecules in collagen.Cooperating Bacteria Isolate Cheaters Bacteria, which reciprocally exchange amino acids, stabilize their partnership on two-dimensional surfaces and limit the access of non-cooperating bacteria to the exchanged nutrients.Novel Approach to Understanding Brain Function Russell Poldrack scanned his brain to create the most detailed map of brain connectivity ever.
